    Is the osb painted? Your glue may be just soaking into the wood.

    But even on drywall you need to seal it. That may be the problem. You can size the wall with wallpaper pase diluted with water as a primer. Should stick then.

    In your original post you said it was prepasted. You might want to try an iron to heat the adhesive on the back of the paper while it is on the plywood.

    I hope this helps you. But please don't look past using temporary solutions. In two years or less you will need to change the walls anyway. If you have access to wide double stick tape try that along the edges and middle on the plywood.
